Honor's MWC 2022 showcase and, thus, the launch of the Magic4 smartphone series, is now nearly upon us. Despite this, the OEM has decided to reveal a potentially significant detail in advance: a side-on new-flagship view that reveals a pronounced curve toward an extremely skinny frame on the part of both the display and rear panel.

Honor's next major global product event is imminent. It is slated to introduce the successor to the Magic3 and 3 Pro to the world, possibly in addition to more novel variants such as the 4 Future. However, the OEM has chosen to spoil a major facet of the series' industrial design.

Its latest Magic4 teaser, posted recently to Weibo, confirms that at least 1 of its new phones will launch with a profoundly quad-curved display. This might appeal to some fans for its potential viewing-angle and screen-to-body ratio advantages; however, others might prefer a flat display for an improved overall grip and overall UX.

Nevertheless, Honor will proceed with the release of a new premium phone with an ultra-narrow frame in 2022. The internals to be found between the 2 waterfall-like glass panels are said to include typical flagship components such as the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 thus far, although, Honor has also hinted at "innovative technology" to debut in conjunction with these new Magic-series phones on February 28, 2022.
